It was our first date night in months because of Covid. It was the BEST Covid-friendly experience! My husband and I have been reluctant to go out to restaurants because the few times we’ve tried at other places, people weren’t wearing their masks and there were too many people in the restaurants. After talking with Richard the week before, I felt confident that we could count on him to run it right and decided to give it a try. We could not have been more delighted! Of course the food was delicious and service wonderful, but we were so relieved to see that proper social distancing was in place, the tables had been set far apart, and the staff were all wearing their masks- correctly, too! We were able to relax and truly enjoy ourselves, and it was so incredibly nice to have date night again! We will definitely be back soon. So grateful to Richard and his staff! Congratulations on a job well done.

The dining environment and the food were excellent, as always. The servers have always been friendly and attentive, but this night, our server, Angie, was truly exceptional. Angie helped make a wonderful evening, unforgettable.

Everything was great other than my steak. This is the second time in a row that my steak hasn’t been good. Very disappointing. Ely’s has always been my go to for fine dining and for steak I’m particular. I don’t know if there is a different chef now but I will order something other than steak from now on.

The best filet and cowboy ribeye in the state. The sides are shareable, the tabouli and asiago mac and cheese is heavenly. Elys is set in a beautiful location upstairs in Ridgeland, MS. The food is out of this world and the staff exudes impeccable customer service. I personally do not find Elys expensive, you get what you pay for. Elys is worth every penny.

Salad, bread, tuna were excellent as well as dessert. Stuffed fried shrimp was dry & gummy. The pasta it was served on was not good at all. Guess it was a poor choice on my part but chef needs to be aware that it was not very good.

The food was absolutely perfect. Only negative I might could say about the overall experience were the drinks. I had two old fashions and the first was very watered down I got the second on a big cube and it was a little better but something was still off. However, I will still go back and order the same drinks.

Best Rib-eye I have every had. It was pure delicious. I will be returning again. This was a date night with my hubby and he loved the steak as well. The house salad with creamy balsamic vinaigrette was wonderful! I recommend getting the rib eye with mash potatoes and the salad!!

Perfection is the only suitable word.

You must order the crab cakes but you also don’t want to miss the artichokes.

It’s your fault if you skip the bisque.

Bone-in ribeye is awesome but get a few scallops on top.

You can’t go wrong with their fish dishes or shareable sides.

Get your dessert to go...you will regret skipping any of them.

Ely’s is one of my favorite restaurants in the Ridgeland area. The atmosphere, quality of food, menu choices, and service is always excellent. We had crab claws for an appetizer and they were outstanding. Our group walked out having an extremely nice dining experience. Can’t wait to go back!

This was our fourth visit and we will return. Our food was excellent. The dressing on my wife’s salad was a little heavy. It tasted very good, just too much. Next time she’ll take it on the side. Staff and service was attentive and fully met our needs. You will enjoy your meal at Ely’s.

Comfortable environment with knowledgeable server. Fried oyster appetizer was superb with light crisp breading and 2 delicious sauces. Salads cold and crisp with adequate tasty dressing. The small beef filet was a very decent size, seasoned and cooked perfectly. Spinach Parmesan au gratin the best we’ve ever had there. We tried the macaroni this time instead of the mashed potatoes (which are always good), and it was really good. Timing of serving each course was perfect. Never rushed, nor were we having to wait. Everything was perfect. Can’t wait to go back!!!

The food was fantastic and the service was great. I would highly recommend the restaurant. For some, the price of nearly $100 for a dinner for two might give pause, but there's nothing about the food or the place that I found negative.

There was some noise, but not too bad. It sounded like someone in another room had a very bad cough. The food was exceptional, as advertised. All in all, an excellent meal!
